The Way We Were
Barbra Streisand

The Way We Were

Mem'ries light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored mem'ries
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again,
Tell me, would we? Could we?

Mem'ries may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember the way we were

The way we were
